I led the first of a 2-day training event at a local professional organization; thus, I didn’t coach at CFS.

And it was weird.

I thought about CFS the entire day, and I missed being there.

I attended the 6:30 session led by the always delightful Jannicka. I finally had an opportunity to participate in a session that she led and to be coached by her. She did a wonderful job! Thanks, Jannicka!

I had planned on doing my own thing, but decided to join the 6:3oers, including (in alphabetical order) Angie, Ashlee, Kevin, & Robin.

Press, push press, push jerk


I completed sets @ 65, 80, 95, 115, & 125#, somewhat different weights than yesterday. I did not, however, successfully press 125# — my current 1RM. I did complete push press and push jerk @ 125#, though. 

As much as I really didn’t want to complete another 111 burpees, I did just that. Just before the metcon began I thought, “You really don’t have to do this, Paul.” I increased the height of the jump to 6″ target above farthest reach of fingertips. And what a difference 4 inches can make. That’s what he said.

111 burpees to 6″ target

I paused ever so briefly after completing 50, 75, and then 90 burpees. I did, however, complete the last 21 burpees at a rapid-fire pace. I heard Jannicka say, “Try to match Paul’s pace. He’s speeding up!”

My time was 6:23, just 9 seconds slower than yesterday. Not bad. Not bad at all.
